Three Phase Event Announces Changes to Competition

The Three Phase Event, Inc. organizers are pleased to announce changes to the divisions of our competition to include an additional level, the Preliminary Division. This highest level will truly challenge the versatility of the gaited horse/eventing rider, in all three phases. They must step up to fulfill the team aspects between horse and rider, in the demanding stadium obstacle course, the elegance and polish of horse and rider in the dressage ring, and finally, test the communication needed to tackle the long, time sensitive, open cross country obstacle course. These competitors will be the inspiration of the levels below them to aspire to, and a lot of attention will be focused on those riders who enter the Preliminary Division.

In addition to the new division, we have dropped the age on our youth to 11 years old in our Beginner Novice Division, 12-18 years old in the Novice division, and 14 and above in the Training Division. There are no youth in the Preliminary Division. It was determined that we have very strong and competitive youth, very capable of completing at a younger age and wish to include them in the Three Phase Event. All divisions are patterned after the United States Eventing Associations current divisions. The dressage tests (USDF Intro A and Intro B which the gaited horses adapt to the gait characteristic of their breed) are taken from the United State Dressage Federation for the beginning novice and novice divisions, and the training and preliminary level tests are the USEF Training 1 and 2, respectively.

We encourage all competitors to go the our website; http://www.threephaseevent.com and check out all requirements for competing in the Three Phase Event. We begin taking entries on March 1st, and the close at midnight, April 1st, so be sure to get your entries in on time.
